Gimli, son of Glóin, was a well-respected dwarf warrior in Middle-earth during the Great Years. He was a member of the Fellowship of the Ring, and was the only one of the dwarves to readily fight alongside elves in the war against Sauron at the end of the Third Age. After the defeat of Sauron, he was given lordship of the Glittering Caves at Helm’s Deep.
Like most Dwarves, Gimli favoured the axe and carried an assortment of variations of the weapon throughout his travels. This item is his short double-headed battle axe, most seen throughout the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
